Red panda born in Berlin as part of global breeding programme

BERLIN (AP) — A rare red panda has been born at a Berlin zoo, only a few months after its parents were brought to the German capital from India, the zoo said in a statement yesterday.

The little cub was first discovered on June 6 in its mother’s cave at the Tierpark Zoo and it is now the size of a guinea pig. The animal’s gender is know yet known and it has not yet been named. It is the 10th red panda to be raised in Berlin as part of a international breeding programme to help protect the endangered animals.
